    I'm just curious, who did kos support for the 2004 Presidential primaries? I thought it was Dean but this posting reads like he didn't like Dean all that much.

    •  He never (none)
      really officially endorsed a candidate.  He spoke very positively of Dean, moreso than any other person running in the primaries, and he continues to do so.  Maybe Steve McMahon was one of the main reasons that Markos never desired to come right out and endorse Dean.
    •  Wow (none)
      Thats some great logic(sarcasm).

      You go to work and hate a co-worker that automatically means you hate your boss.

      Read through the whole thing and tell me where the heck Kos says he hates Dean>?

      •  He doesn't hate Dean (none)
        I didn't write that Kos hates dean. But I did get the impression that he was less than enthralled with him. Here is what made me think that "All hesitations I've ever had about Dean stem from the fact that he continues to associate himself closely with this guy -- a man so unprincipled that he has worked for big pharma against progressive principles and on behalf of Jeb Bush." So he had "hesitations" about Dean. A long way from hate and pretty close to what I wrote.

        •  While he never endorsed... (none)
          he did express very negative thoughts about pretty much everyone except Dean and Clark, with copious Gephardt bashing, and some sharp words for John Kerry, Joe Lieberman, and John Edwards.  He had a big post where he said that it would either be Dean or Clark, and that he could happily support either.
